Good advice here so far, but make sure you can go to a shop where you can try a few models
out. Try before you buy.

That is normal wear for the EL, it is of no concern, just cosmetic, Swarovski service does not repaint
those areas.
This is a common practice among all makes, AFAIK.

With that budget I would go with the Zeiss Conquest HD or the Nikon Monarch HG.
I have both in 10x42, and I really like them both.

That looks way too bulky for normal binocular use. A specialist thing, seems better suited for a mounted binocular.

Chuck:

Take the FL, the 10x42 is much better to lug around. You will not miss much if anything.

You know you must rotate binoculars occasionally or one of them might feel slighted....:-O

I will chime in here, the 10x35 is easier to handle because it has longer barrels. The 8x30 EII is a very short, squat binocular. If you do a search,

Just tape it up. I have tried a recent Canon 10x32 IS binocular, I was not impressed with it in any way.
Good optics, poor ergos.
